Spaghetti with Gizzard

12 May

Give gizzards a chance! They are inexpensive, add great earthiness to sauces, and provide a nice textural contrast with pasta…

SLICE garlic and gizzards thin…

COOK spaghetti and set aside 2 cups of pasta water…

DRAIN and set aside pasta after rinsing under cold water…

SEASON gizzards with salt + pepper

SAUTÉE garlic in olive oil…

ADD chopped parsley stems and red chili flake…

ADD gizzards + lemon juice… sautée until all sides are browned…

ADD one 28 oz can of plum tomatoes (tomatoes cut into small pieces with scissors) + one cup of pasta water…

SIMMER for 10 minutes and re-season with salt + pepper…

ADD another cup of pasta water and continue to simmer until sauce is reduced by half…

ADD pasta and toss with butter until coated…

TOP with chopped parsley… (can also add shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano)…
